I visited Chef Mavro's on a trip to Hawaii from San Francisco. Since we have a lot of good restaurants back home, it's tough to impress me. The restaurant is small and intimate, being a mile or so out of the Waikiki strip, but very modern and elegant. The onaga I had was exquisite and tender, and the chocolate marquise with a green tea mousse was intriguing. Portions aren't huge but a series of amuses between courses make up for it. Very personable, too - the chef's wife saw me dining by myself and came over to thank me for coming in.
